December 2nd Update - Normand went to RMSJ schooling show and hacked around the warm up ring with all the "grown up" horses, after having 2 weeks off and no prep, and was a perfect gentleman. What a great guy!
October 25th Update - Normand is now being ridden by a junior and is such a rockstar. They are both having so much fun.
October 19th Update - Normand went on a road trip to Spruce Meadows schooling day this past weekend and was an absolute super star!... (read more) Jumped right on the trailer like a big boy, hacked around the busy warm-up ring like a pro and took in all the excitement of a horse show with no worries.
October 2nd Update - Normand has now had about 30 rides on him and has been started over fences!! Just a few little X rails here and there but he absolutely loves it. Also does his flying changes naturally. Comments from people at the barn have included "That is the nicest, most easy going two year old I have ever seen." Video of W/T/C, flying changes and jumps available.
STUNNING 2010 Thoroughbred x Canadian Warmblood gelding by TIMELY ROBERTO, APHA Reserve World Champion Working Hunter and out of MAYBELLINE II, grand daughter of CALYPSO GIRL, who was ridden by Laura Balisky in the Open Jumpers and also went to the Olympics. This gelding is bred to jump and also has the movement for dressage. He will excel in any discipline!
Normand has a great temperament, is easy to handle, loves people, and is always the first one to come greet you in the field. Free jumps well with great form and shows a lot of potential. He is super easy on the ground (baths, clips, ties, good for the farrier and vaccinations/deworming). No naughty habits at all, wants to learn and is very inquisitive. He even hacks out alone or in a group of horses and goes on trail rides. Price will increase with training.
He currently sticks approx 15.2hh and should mature to about 16.1hh
Price reduced to sell before Christmas as I have too many young horses to break in the New Year. Come take a look at this fabulous gelding!
